AT&T and Samsung are finally pushing out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 4. The update is actually a slightly tweaked version of what Samsung has been pushing out (which was is what Sprint’s users received) that brings Mute mode back. Otherwise, the update is identical and gives the Galaxy Note 4 all of Lollipop’s much appreciated new features.
Moto X just loves providing the simple but very useful stuff don’t they? And there is nothing wrong with that because we love it. The QuickCapture double twist gesture is just one example as you can start the Camera app with a simple double twist of your wrist.
Now Motorola is adding another action (in the Android 5.1 update) that will allow you to quickly open the flashlight by moving your phone twice in a chopping motion. Google had already added a quick way to open the flashlight through the Quick Settings, but this is just one extra way to do it. It should work even when the phone’s display is turned off, making this even quicker.
If you are the proud owner of a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi (SM-T800) tablet and you reside in France, you might want to dig into your settings and start tapping the software update button. Why? Because Samsung is pushing the Lollipop update to your device as we speak.
Update: According to a reader, the lollipop OTA is hitting the Tab S 10.5 WiFi in Canada as well!
The launch of Android 5.1 was met with software updates for various Nexus 6 variants. The handset on T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks are all roaming the country with the latest version of Android. The Nexus 6 for AT&T, however, was left without the update until now.
It’s just a couple of days ago that we reported that the stock variant of the HTC One M7 would be marooned on Android 5.0.2 while the GPE M7 would be updated to Android 5.1. Understandably, this news upset some M7 owners who were confused about how the 5.1 update could be classed as a major update to the Android operating system as it consists mainly of tweaks and bug fixes. There may be some cause for hope though.
Motorola has just announced that it’s now started internally testing an Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Moto X (2014). The upgrade will begin rolling out to unlocked variants over the course of the next few weeks, but carrier-branded devices will have to wait a little longer.
Hit the break below to see what Motorola has included in the Android 5.1 update (version 23.1.38).

The HTC One M7 has been in the news lately thanks to the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update (belatedly) being rolled out around the world. It would appear that this is the last major Android update that the M7 will receive though, according to HTC’s Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi.
If you own a Motorola Droid Turbo on Verizon, you’ve probably been waiting patiently (or not) for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to hit your device. Verizon doesn’t have the best record when it comes to Android updates, but we have some news (good and possibly bad) after the break.
